The Tomb of Jesus, the site where Jesus was buried and later ascended to heaven, has finally been restored to its former glory.

The restoration of the Edicule was well timed for completion before this year's Easter festivities and was carried out by a team of Greek restorers team.

For the fist time ever, pilgrims will be able to see the bare stone of the historic and religious burial cave after the restorers carved out a small window from the shrine's marble walls.
